. here is how speaker john boehner summed it up today. >> you know, the premise here is pretty simple. it says that there should be no long-term increase in the debt limit until there is a long-term plan to deal with the fiscal crisis that faces our country. >> and now the democrat-controlled senate hasn't really passed a budget resolution during the obama administration ever. but even before the house approved the new -- no budget, no pay measure. harry reid said he would bring it up and intends to pass it it watch. >> but to spare the middle class another knockdown, drag out fight we're going to proceed to work on this legislation and get it out of here as quickly as we can. >> i also want to give credit where credit is due. and i thank speaker boehner for his leadership in diffusing a fight over the debt ceiling debate. >> 86 house democrats went along with boehner in the bill. 33 republicans opposed it as insufficiently conservative, shep? >> shepard: this doesn't stop the fight though, carl. it just puts it off for a while, right? >> yeah, in the short-term it did i investigators
to be seen what common ground, if any we can find between the two sides. house speaker boehner wants to balance the budge net ten years but doing that would take massive spending cuts that democrats won't go for. we're back after the break. coming on to me all the time now.

in quite such a pressurized environment so john boehner was able to convince his caucus to accept the council to move past the debt limit. they're now shifting to other fiscal fights and we will have a series through february, march, april, may. which is when the debt limit current extension is going to run out. but i think they're hoping they can take some of the pressure off. >> go ahead. gwen: what are some of the specific fixes here? talk about leadership and they want to talk about leadership and show something different. what are they actually -- >> that's where there's a real disconnect in what the r.n.c. is doing. jindal's speech was all about messaging and framing the party. but when you look at the panel that newly elected r.n.c. chairman ryan previous has put together to come up with specific recommendations how to fix things and improve competitiveness -- gwen: the growth and opportunity project. i love that name. >> yeah, it sounds like a federal bill, doesn't it? >> big government there. >> yes, but they're all tactics. they're all about tactics. on abortion, let's n
we offered speaker boehner. it is public. $400 billion in health care savings we offered, and $200 billion of additional cuts in domestic spending and a trillion dollars in savings and look at where we started the negotiated process and the speaker, we went more than halfway. >> chris: is the president still willing to adjust the cost of living increase for entitlements, is he still willing to raise the eligibility age for medicare? are those still on the table? >> i will not talk about specifics that may be in the package. it is will report in the discussions with speaker boehner we were willing to entertain the cost of living adjustment. but, the overall package, we put over a trillion dollars including the proposal on cpi. over a trillion dollars, in spending cuts. now, some of the republicans say they don't want revenue. speaker boehner himself said there was $800 million of revenue, simply from closing corporate loopholes an loopholes for the wealthy. surely there is additional revenue we can get from closing loopholes, not rates, that was done -- dealt with at the end of the
bickering gets put aside. do these guys like each other or do they not like each other? mr. boehner said something rather strong about harry reid. we assume that kind of language was not used in the white house this morning, but can they really get along and do what needs to get done? >> there is -- there are pockets of enmity that are quite well-known. what's really wonderful about washington, and this day is going to be full of this, is that you can have members, particularly on the senate floor, that can just bash each other. john has had a bird's-eye view of this. during the day with key issues of state at risk, and at the end of the day they can go off to the moncle and have a drink or a steak and so -- >> although a lot less than used to take place. >> that's true. >> jill biden, the vice president's wife, the second lady of the united states, begins her way down to the podium. >> i think there is more partisanship about to break out. >> call it bipartisanship. >> maybe i'm caught up in the spirit of the day. >> explain. >> i'll explain. >> and where do you see that? >> i have some
more to them. but emotionally they probably wanted to make boehner pass this bill with his republicans. you know, in a way don't blame them for that. it's a harmless game. there are harmful games and harmless games. that was a relatively harmless one. obama also supported the passage of this, john, i think that if it had been in danger i think enough democrats would have switched over and voted yes. i think they were just trying to make a point. >> john: that makes me feel better. but let me ask you something the number one criticism from my republican friends has been so budget has been passed. why can't you democrats pass a budget how shameful. how should democrats respond to this? >> well, it is true that they haven't passed a budget. you can say that matters or it doesn't matter that much because they operate these days on the continuous resolutions so on and so forth. it does put a little bit of pressure on the senate democrats to do this. but of course this is another thing where you can just just--nothing is written in concrete. you can pass a budget that says we are going to ha
spending. i think he was interested in 2011, almost got a deal with speaker john boehner on a grand bargain on entitlement reform, crafting a budget now. i don't think you're going to see major cuts in that. it's a significant shift. remember, obama said the deficit kept his awake in the first term. through his actions, you know, he's not pursuing a lot of cuts and changes to entitlements. liz: what is feasible for the president to get through with a window of 16 months? gun control? what do you think he can push through successfully? >> well, i think he will try to push through gun control, and they are starting right away, and i know biden is in virginia trying to sell the plan, but i think that what's clear is that the president's agenda and the american people's agenda are different. it's expwressing to see that the president is tackling those issues that are at the very bottom of the public's priorities. climate change, gun control, and even infrastructure. these are not changes that the american public wants. they are asking for real economic growth, job creation, tackling the budget
house is for the worse. mr. obama and john boehner are barely on speaking terms. host: that is the "wall street journal's" take on what is ahead for the second term for president obama. then the "baltimore sun" -- host: so that vote taking place on wednesday in the house. about our coverage, here is the "baltimore sun" this morning. they note in here -- host: we're getting your thoughts on the second term and the inaugural address. beverly, north carolina, democratic caller. good morning. caller: his speech was wonderful. and i think now, at last, he has come into himself. four years ago, his speech was mostly about -- we will just say he came to office believing that he could join people together, that there were no blue or red states, just the united states. well, republicans surely through what i call a monkey wrench into that. so i really believe now that he changes his strategy and he believes and sees diversity. he's going to tackle it. i think he is now going to fight for the democratic legacy, for people with social security and medicare. he is going to be himself now. that is wh
into president obama's second term speaker of the house john boehner says he beliefs the president wants to destroy the republican party making it easier for the white house to push through the agenda of democrats. have a listen here. >> so we're expecting mere over the next 22 months to be the focus of this administration as they attempt too annihilate the republican party. and let me just tell you, i do believe that is their goal, to just shove us into the dustbin of history. bill: that's not, not just some guy talking. that is the speaker of the house. monica crowley, radio talk show host, fox news contributor. good morning, monica. emily sussman, president of young democrats for america. how are you doing today. >> very well. thank you. bill: let's go at it. what do you make of the speaker's comments of nile ages? >> just dawning on john boehner and republican leadership this is the president's goal no wonder the republicans had a tough time of it recently. of course this is the president's goal. it has been his goal since day one. there is nothing in the president's history or backg
% of americans approve of the job he's doing as president. only 26% approve of the republican party. john boehner has an 18% approval rating. the tea party, 9% approval rating. this is a movement, this is a party in retreat and that's why the president did what he did yesterday. >> let's look at that. best case scenario would be to have two strong parties and a great national conversation and great sense of balance. i understand how you could read the speech as i won, ha-ha, and also, could be seen as this is what the country is telling me. how do we get the other points of view in there. maybe perhaps -- this is the hard part, extract what i think is dying and what i think you think is dying, that is the extremist part of that. >> the extreme part of the republican party is in retreat and just as bill buckley chased john birchers out of the conservative movement in the 1960s, so, too, will these extremists be chased out of the mainstream of the republican party. they will evolve or they will die. it's that simple. i'm not so sure the president can say, katty kay, this is what the american people
boehners and the mitch mcconnells and say in the search for common ground, i hear what you guys are saying? >> look, i think the whole theme of this speech was that throughout our history we've had very, very significant differences and we've been able to work through those differences and of course, you know, you're a student of history, now we've gone through more significant eras of dissent and disagreement than this. his point was we can come together. the point on absolutism though, is we can't come together if we are unyielding and unbending in our points of view. >> why so little talk about jobs and the economy? >> well, i think if you looked at the opening passages of the president's speech he talked about building an economy in which opportunity abounds, in which people can get ahead. that's the fundamental question and obviously jobs is a -- is an essential issue for our country, but also, building an economy which those jobs pay and which people can get ahead, that's fundamental. i mean, we have a state of the union speech this three weeks in which he'll have an opportunity to l
, and john boehner will be headed over there. first, president obama began with the slogan hope and change. then he got a jolt of washington reality. we'll take a look back at the some times rocky road of the first term. >> we've seen that crowd building, craig. good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning. the crowd, indeed, has been growing throughout the morning. say hello. say hello. before you get from the u.s. capital behind me, the less it is like an inauguration, the more it is like a block party/picnic. folks from texas, buffalo, new york, who have said several times this is far from cold. i do want to -- where are you from? >> from new jersey. >> reporter: from new jersey. first inauguration? >> yes, it is. >> reporter: what brings you out? >> obama all the way. >> reporter: how about you? where are you from? >> trenton, new jersey. >> reporter: oh, this is all jersey here? i should have known by the rowdiness. and where are you guys from? >> atlanta, georgia. >> reporter: from atlanta. sorry about the falcons but welcome to d.c. >> it's all good. thank you. >> reporter: first
to bring us together. >> house speaker john boehner is meeting with the house republican conference right now. according to a source in the room boehner is calling for the republican party to present a budget that balances the federal budget in 10 years. given where democrats and republicans have been on that issue, republicans against any type of increases in taxes you can imagine all that would come through spending cuts and not be all that acceptable to democrats on capitol hill. so recall tore there will be a vote in the house to extend the debt ceiling until may 19th. that is contingent both houses of congress passing a budget. something that senate majority leader harry reid said is a big step forward for republicans. they're not calling for any spending decreases in this debt ceiling increase. the white house put out a statement said it would not oppose a short-term debt deal though neither getting real specific whether or not they would actually agree to what the house is hoping to pass tomorrow. back to you. david: rich, reading through that, frankly didn't take too long to read
boehner said now is the time to deal with immigration. but, you know the questions you were just talking about. is will some of your colleagues on the far right, tea partyiers, perhaps, support this path to citizenship for illegal immigrants? >> well, you know, jackie kucinich had it exactly right. this has the prospect of s success. it's all about whether house republicans are willing to stand up to the tea party base. you've got a bipartisan group of senators left and right advocating a path forward. you've got the president of the united states who will unveil his views on a path forward. what this comes down to now is will these house republicans who have pandered to their intolerant tea party base, who have fed into the extremism of that tea party base, are they willing to stand up to the tea party and do what's right for america? we'll see whether they're able to amass the votes to get us forward. >> they might see this is amnesty. what would you say? >> well, you know what? i'm interested in solutions. i'm not interested in rhetoric. i'm not interested in finger pointing. i'm not
. >> john: a few moments ago, speaker of the house john boehner entered, the most tan man in washington, d.c. in january. john mccain. >> jennifer: john mccain talking with dianne feinstein, i'm sure about gun control. cutting a deal right there. >> john: it is rather unseasonably warm today. i'm thankful for that for the folks who are there. >> jennifer: tammy baldwin. >> john: yesterday i was shocked at how warm it was. a lot of folks were expressing confusion as to why the president was sworn in yesterday. the constitution requires, of course, the president be sworn in on january 20th. since federal buildings and courthouses are closed on sunday, the ceremony is still scheduled for today on the 21st which happens to be dr. king's holiday. the president's second term officially began at 12:00 noon eastern time yesterday. >> led by kevin mccarthy. >> jennifer: john dingell. god bless him. longest serving member of congress. over 50 years. his father served in congress, too. he has it in his blood. >> john: this is like the oscars for political. >> macy's day parade coverage. instead of bl
boehner, eric cantor, the number two republican in the house, and mitch mcconnell, the republican leader in the senate, are at the white house right now having coffee with the president. do you think that there really is a chance that there can be some sort of a get together, bipartisan effort, something we haven't seen thus far? >> you know, not on everything, bob, but on some things for sure. not just because people are becoming enlightened, but because of their self-interest. if you look at your own polling and the polling that we have seen in the last few days, the republican party is trading at record lows. the congress at almost record lows. the strategy of obstruction has not been worked well for the republican party. that's why i think you saw them retreat from the plan to push this debt ceiling issue immediately upon returning to work. so i think that there's a prospect for getting some things done. certainly on issues like immigration reform. there's a powerful impetus for there to be progress. i think we can make some. >> david, thank you very much. you're going to be leaving
boehner, the republican majority leader, eric cantor. the people that he will be doing battle with, just after this is done. but this is the moment for unity. and talking to the president's aides about what he hopes to convey in this speech, he will acknowledge the deep divisions, the deep political divisions, that dominated so much of his first term. he'll talk about, despite those divisions, we have to come together to do what we can. >> i'm looking at the scene now, we all are together, as the president comes out of church. we see sasha with him, who yesterday told him, he didn't mess up. at the other -- malia will be coming in soon. i think we're all struck at the difference in four years, as we look at them. and remembering that four years ago, at this moment, the president had just been released the nuclear codes. in the white house, they were scrambling to put toys on the beds for the girls, organizing a scavenger hunt to find their ways around. >> today, after the ceremony, they'll just be going home. it's been their home for the last four years. the president's family getting in
's the luncheon.where the first lady sat next to house speaker john boehner. photos and video suggest she wasn't even pretending to enjoy that. some observers say michelle obama was rolling her eyes. and even when boehner touched her arm and tried to talk to her.she mostly ignored him and refused to make eye contact. it's been described as 'rude.' >> but no one is criticizing little sasha for a big yawn during her father's speech yesterday. she's only 11 after all.and it was a long day. the inaugural yawn has gone viral. she's clearly unaffected by the global audience. another sign of normal. sasha and malia spent a lot of time during the parade - playing with their phones. they were taking pictures of their parents. they were texting. but look at the president on the right -- he's on 'his' phone too. this is his beloved blackberry. staffers have tried to get him to upgrade or maybe try something different, like an i-phone -- but he refuses to part with his blackberry. >> there are new developments photo was used as the "face" of the twitter account of manti te'o's supposed girlfriend says the
surprised if this thing ever gets out of the senate. i think speaker john boehner love the idea of saying that we will give serious consideration to whatever harry reid senate passes and sends to us in a matter of gun control. it's a terrible issue for democrats. i don't think obama has the loyalty among democrats in gun control that he thinks he has. jon: hairy weed has the support of the nra in times past. >> yes, harry reid cannot cross the nra. there are voters in a lot of these places. the nra doesn't speak for them. this is a popular position among actual voters and you can see the red states with blue feathers. jon: good analysis as always. thank you so much. >> it's great to be here be to growing pressure on the senate to do something they haven't done in four years. we are talking about passing a federal budget. republicans in the house trying to force senators to come up with a spending plan will go without pay. mike emanuel is live on capitol hill with more. when we take up the debt ceiling deal? reporter: the senate is likely to take up the bill some time next week. they are r
of sequencing, the critical question is the house, and john boehner twice in the last few weeks has had to bring a bill to the floor that a majority of house republicans oppose. that doesn't happen very often. likely on immigration, you can get 60 votes for comprehensive reform, probably puts bainer in t the same position. there are only so many times you can do that and remain speaker. the important sequencing has begun with the sandy and fiscal cliff votes. >> we'll stick with the metaphor. warming in cooperation or chilly confrontation? >> the incentives nationally for republicans are to do something about immigration. but if you are -- your average house member up there, you just won your district. probably did not support barack obama, and frankly your incentives are not aligned with the national party. you don't care about whether chrissis chriss christie or marco rubio gets support. pundits and grassroots and a lot of members will decide the issue in the house of representatives. >> big challenges for the president and internally. ahead on "starting point," we've heard about the second te
that on capitol hill, and when speaker boehner gave a toast a few moments ago at the traditional luncheon between the president and the congressional leaders he spoke about coming together. take a listen. >> in the spirit of harmony i'm proud to present the flags that flew over this battalion of democracy today, to president obama and vice president joe biden. to you gentleman, i say, congratulations and godspeed. >>reporter: the real test whether they can come together is not today with the porch and circumstance but more likely next month with the president going back to capitol hill to deliver the state of the union address. he will have more details on immigration reform, the deficit reduction plan with sharp differences between the parties. they are talking about coming together today but there will be a lot of major policy battles in the days ahead. people have been waiting on pennsylvania av parade to come by and they cannot wait to see the president. the pomp and circumstance will carry the day for now; the policy for another day. >>shepard: i work in new york and you in washington and on
in their faces. and mayor cory booker will spend the weekend driving around with a police radio. john boehner likes to spend his weekend at his favorite store the stop and sob. he wanders
to raise the debt ceiling. speaker boehner is expected to give a news conference later toda today. >> there are a lot of deadlines in washington for investors to keep track of, they each carry their own risk. let me walk you through what we are expecting. starting tomorrow on wednesday, the house republicans say they're going to have a vote to extend the debt ceiling. they say they will raise the $16.4 trillion cap enough to extend the debt ceiling to mid-may. on march 1st, you have the sequester, when the spending cuts will kick in. about $85 billion of cuts automatically to defense and domestic spending. the risk there is a drag to the gdp. on the 27th, current law on the government funding runs out that forces a drama over a continuing resolution, or you face the risk of a government shut down. on april 15th, that's the date by which the house would force congress to pass a budget or see their pay cut. the risk there, of course, is members of congress might have to go quite some time without a paycheck. tyler? >> thank you very much, eamonn. >>> the gop originally wanted to tie
for months and years crafting a bipartisan agreement. i can tell you, john, i have spoken to speaker boehner about this. every time i see speaker boehner i talk to him about immigration to the point i don't have to open my mouth anymore before he says to me, relax, we're going to do something on this. i know also that representative raul abrador, very popular with the tea party who is on the judiciary committee, is working on a set of principles, so, yes, there is commitment. there is effort that is going to be made. and it is the right time. and, you know, last time immigration reform failed because of timing, because it was brought up after social security had failed. that's why we cannot wait for something else to fail to bring it up this time. you do have to strike while the iron is hot. yes, we have heard these words before. but i can tell you having been at the republican house retreat, it is a different climate today, than it was the last time this was done. >> and, so, dan, you listened to the senators saying no one is going to get everything they want. i want to put that question to
on inaugural ceremonies, chuck schumer, the speaker of the house of representatives, john boehner, house majority leader, eric cantor and house minority leader, nancy pelosi. [ applause ] >> president obama having arrived at the platform, greeting both of his daughters and his wife and mother-in-law. you see behind him, there is vice president biden, chuck schumer, chair of the inaugural committee is the first person we'll hear from and call proceedings to order. and then it unfolds like the greatest graduation ceremony ever. >> rachel, there's a moment when the new president takes over, like when reagan took over from carter, when the chief of secret service walks behind one guy to the other guy, it is pretty creepy. it is pretty creepy when you're the guy losing protection, but nicely enough, it will be the same guy there. >> jerry ford was the first president who upon leaving office from the inauguration of the new president, jimmy carter, decided to leave by helicopter, seen as a rather odd way to leave on the way, but every president has followed that tradition. it is a dramatic way
connell. speaker boehner and congressman eric cantor. i confirmed that. with each of their offices. a nice bipartisan tradition and good way to kick off a new term. those of you discussing he does not do enough socializing with leaders, here he is doing just that. he's been with -- the wives, vice president biden and his wife has been there as has the first lady. they will then head in the motorcade and make their way up here to the capitol where they will go into a hold for about an hour before the president speaks. >> senator john kerry arriving at the capitol. there's senator kerry. >> confirmation hearings. secretary of state. >> this is the entrance you see usually in the wide shots of the white house. not the back side with the rounded edge. but a flat-wide front of the white house. >> there you see senator kerry on the right. >> one of the big differences when you have a change of power, you know, current president greets the new president and one of the traditions is he leaves a note. that doesn't happen this time. president obama doesn't need to leave himself a note about the seco
sources? >> steve: okay, fine. >> brian: house speaker john boehner looking towards the president's second term and warning republicans about what he sees coming. listen. >> we're expecting over the next 22 months to be the focus of this administration as they attempt to anilate the republican party. >> brian: as recommended by a cbs political director. is this unfortunately true and should americans expect more from both parties? fox news legal analyst peter johnson, jr. is here. is this unprecedented? does every party want to beat the other party to this degree? >> i think there is a visceral, intense dislike coming out of the white house for the republican party that's not unprecedented, but we probably haven't seen such an oppositional party dislike since the waning days of the nixon administration. there is something nixonian about it. i think what john boehner is saying is this is a call to action. this is a wake up call. this is almost a pull revere call saying, we're going to have issues going forward in the next 22 months and we've got to get the folks who are interested in the re
but then the house took recess and did nothing. house speaker john boehner called a vote under pressure. once congress reconvened the first week in january first they approved the $9 billion then the additional $50 billion two weeks later. the vote in the senate is on the remaining plus $50 billion. we're back after the break. stay with us. armed with the facts, and the arguments to feel confident in their positions. i want them to have the data and i want them to have the passion. but it's also about telling them, you're put on this planet for something more. i want this show to have an impact beyond just informing. an impact that gets people to take action themselves. as a human being, that's really important. this is not just a spectator sport. what we need are people prepared for the careers of our new economy. by 2025 we could have 20 million jobs without enough college graduates to fill them. that's why at devry university we're teaming up with companies like cisco to help make sure everyone is ready with the know-how we need for a new tomorrow.
